“Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain,” said the Wizard of Oz to Dorothy, and that’s where Leos are right now! With a number of planets in your secretive twelfth house, you should be working on things that need to be kept under wraps. But by mid-week you’re going to start feeling itchy to step out of the shadows. Yup, your birthday season is a’ comin’ and it’s almost showtime.
Let’s get down to the top secret stuff first. Truth be told, you could be involved in an affair—or considering one—thanks to hosting love planet Venus in your sensitive, secluded zone. It’s also possible that you’re simply not in the mood for sharing your deepest thoughts with your amour. But Sunday gives you a good opportunity to talk things over, especially if you’re concerned about where you stand in your relationship. Security will be on your mind. Your intuition will be active and on point, so if someone isn’t being 100% open with you, you’ll be able to sniff out the truth.
And they better watch their backs, because romantic Venus sashays into Leo on Tuesday, making you the cosmic catnip of the zodiac! Sultry lions who feel as though they’re being ignored won’t have to wait long for new suitors to arrive on their doorsteps.
If you’re happily involved, Venus’s entry into your house of self may mean that some of your needs can finally be placed first and foremost in the relationship. This is a grand time for a makeover, which always goes over well with a feline. Hot stone massages, manicures, a new style for that mane of yours—go for a brand new look, along with a brand new attitude.
That’s because smart-as-a-whip Mercury enters Leo on Wednesday, jazzing up your thought patterns. Not only will you present a terrific self-image, you’ll be able to communicate your skills and talents to an adoring public. (And the Sun hasn’t even entered your sign yet!)
Just keep it real on Monday, when a difficult Mercury-Uranus angle may make you feel as though your wings are being clipped. Long-term plans may need to be readjusted, and with Mercury in its last hush-hush moments, it’s wise to keep quiet about your plans. The same energy reappears on Saturday the 16th, so although planets are now gliding into Leo, there still seems to be the need for confidentiality and fine tuning before the Big Reveal.
You have an ally in energetic Mars, which is determined to bring you a sense of security and contentment in all areas of your life, from love to money. Thursday is a good day to re-examine those plans of yours and tweak them. When Venus conjuncts Mercury on Saturday, your brain will be on fire with happy plans for your upcoming birthday year. Next week the Sun enters Leo and the fun can begin. While you’re considering the year ahead, you may want to take a look first at your career, as the full moon on the 19th bodes well for change and advancement.
